It’s not that I can’t be by myself but it’s just the amount of energy it takes to maintain this house and its kitty inhabitants when one of us is away. Den was in Chicago all week…he just walked in the door right now. He brought cans of wild caught salmon for the girls…two beautiful bunches of tulips for me plus Trader Joe’s Peanut Butter Cups and Trader Joe’s Almost Figgy Newtons!
I was up this morning at three because Lucy and Roxie were up this morning at three! What did they want? They just wanted to look at me and then have a kitty wrestling match on my head!
Why? It’s what these two do…when they are bored at three in the morning!
This one is soooo loud!
I think I am reading this…actually I know I am reading this…I really am reading this.
“Debut novelist Shipman…chosen by memoirist Wade Rouse in homage to his grandmother–pulls out all the emotional bells and whistles here; his book reads like a fictionalized guide to living the good life (“Live! Love! Laugh!”) and checks all the boxes–family, friends, God, love, and simply living–designed to warm the heart and fill the tear ducts…smooth writing…unabashed sentimentality…Kirkus Reviews”
And this one, too…
“Gripping…Shelter keeps excess at bay. Yun shows how, although shelter doesn’t guarantee safety and blood doesn’t guarantee love, there’s something inextricable about the relationship between a child and a parent…Shelter is captivating.”―The New York Times Book Review”
I really want to make this…from Bon Appetit…ricotta cheese, fontina cheese, arugula, crispy bits!
Have a wondrous week end! We are supposed to have a snowstorm on Sunday!
This was my Friday post which I thought I posted but apparently I didn’t!
